Warm as Flesh: Lady Slipper and Mosquito

Warm as Flesh: Lady Slipper and Mosquito

Tired of Lady Slippers yet? Evidently this Lady Slipper in the sun was warm enough to fool a Mosquito into thinking it was flesh. (One less on me!)

Taken at the macro range of the tel end of the zoom on the H50 at 465mm equivalent, and from a low angle using the tip-out LCD: the background is nicely soft and full of bokeh.  Using the far reaches of the zoom did, however, push the ISO up to 400 but the H50 managed a detailed image anyway. Not bad for a tiny sensor.

Sony DSC H50 at 465mm equivalent. F4.5 @ 1/125 @ ISO 400. Programed auto.

Cropped in Lightroom for composition. Just my usual added Clarity and Vibrance, and sharpen.
